NEW DELHI: A BJP legislator in Jammu has called for a ban on popular street food Momos (dumplings) alleging that the dish is more dangerous than alcohol and psychotropic drugs.
Ramesh Arora, member of the Jammu and Kashmir legislative council, believes that Ainomoto (monosodium glutamate) used in momos' recipe is harmful to health and can even cause cancer.
"Momos have been found to be the root cause of several life-threatening diseases, including cancer of the intestine," an English daily quoted him as saying.
He also claimed that our teenagers were getting addicted to momos like drugs and it needed to be stopped.
If this was not enough, Arora has also met the state's health minister Bali Bhagat on the issue.

Not only momos, it should apply to all the street vendors selling unhygienic food. This targeting the people with momo culture the mongoloid people.
A survey says that BJP(Bhartiya Joke Party) is also harmful for Indians. Boycott BJP along-with MOMOs......ROFL

beef momo !!! yummm
Why momos any street food have same danger! Even some of the Patanjali's product have dangerous component.
BJP is only worried about food items, rather than Job creation and other main issues.

Can we ban Dhokla .... Fekus favourite dish
Always vote for BJP.
Ainomoto is very harmful to health. I too avoid having it in my food. Ainomoto also causes colon cancer.
Most of the street food are health hazard ... then why single out Momos ... also Ainomoto is also used in food ... then why is he not targeting it .... May be some special enmity with Momos .
